Elisabeth Naughton writes some fabulous stories. I’ve read her Stolen Series, Against All Odds Series, Firebrand Series and now her Aegis Series. I’ve read the first, “Marked” in her Eternal Guardian Series and somewhere along the line lost track of the eternal gods!
It was a welcome change of read to get in touch with this series again. “Twisted” is number seven in her Eternal Guardian Series and is packed with enough twists and turns to keep us glued the pages of the book.
Nick is imprisoned by Zagreaus on the command of his father Hades and is tortured to break him down as Hades’s got a lot to lose if Nick gets control of his full powers. Nick is Misos, and has been protecting his clan forever from the evils. Knowing that Demetrius is his half brother and they have the same soul mate, makes it even more twisted and Nick eventually sacrifices himself to keep their soul mate alive.
Cynna strikes a deal with the devil’s son and is forced to torture Nick, despite feeling a pull towards him. Eventually she manages to free Nick and both escape from the walls of hell. They are not out of the woods yet, as they run for their lives and eventually reach the sanctuary of the Argonauts, his brother and soul mate.
Now starts the real journey as they battle their feelings for each other amidst the secrets that keep spilling. Cynna’s roots are connected to Isadora, Isadora is Nick’s soul mate, and Nick and Cynna are in love with each other. With all these dynamics playing among the guardians, Twisted is one frenzy ride of powerful emotions, sizzling passion and ultimate loyalty.
Twisted can be read as a standalone, but it would be more satisfying and enjoyable to get to know the Eternal Guardians in a sequence.
Received an ARC from Netgalley for an honest review.
